Breaking Open the Bookcase

Designing bookcase accessories can be a tricky art! Today we are breaking open the bookcase to show you┬áthe in’s and out’s of a bookcase and how to make it look magazine ready!
1. Turn books on their side:
One little tip we always practice is not only rotating books from upright to on their side, but also facing pages out instead of spine out to give a look of uniformity
2. Add “objects”:
“Found” objects, small sculptures, or unique items help to break up books
3. Bring in framed pieces:
Whether it is framed family photos, or framed art, we love to bring in color in this way
4. Repeat similar elements:
The key to a bookcase is to not get it too busy. By repeating similar patterns and elements you create a rhythm and purpose to the shelves
5. Love negative space:
Don’t add TOO much. Embrace open and empty areas
Happy bookcase decorating!
